Earlier last month, we list down 7 hotels in Malaysia that have either close down or will be singing its swan song soon. Four Points by Sheraton is another hotel to join the list.
Last Sunday (31st May 2020), the Four Points by Sheraton in Sandakan, Sabah announced its official closure by sending out “thank you” messages.
Netizens shared that at 7:30pm, the 5-star hotel began lighting up room light arrangements with the messages “Thanks All” and “Take Care” to the Sandakan folks, staff, and patrons.
It’s sad to see Sandakan’s only 5-star hotel, Four Points by Sheraton, shut down after 7 years of operations. Although there are still other branches in the Klang Valley (including Puchong), rumour has it that the Kuala Lumpur branch will be sold off soon.
Ever since the Covid-19 outbreak swept the world, the tourism sector is one of the industries that have been hit the hardest with little to no income over the past few months.
Industries have even discussed what will befall on the remaining hotels in the country. More on that here.
